Library Card Questions:

Q: I don't have a Library Card. How can get one?

A: We are currently accepting online applications for temporary internet-only Library cards so patrons who don't already have a card can access our online collections.

Q: I can't find my Library Card. What's my Library Card Number? 

A: If you've already registered for a library card with us, we have your number on file. In order to confirm your library card number, we'll need you to verify your contact information first. Once verified, we can email you your library card number.

 Send a request to have your library card emailed to you through our "Help, I'm Having Login Issues!" form

Q: A service is asking for my 10-digit library card number. My card has more than 10-digits.

A: If you had one of the yellow WV Northern Library Network (WVNLN) cards before you signed up to use the services at the Ohio County Public Library, we may have added your WVNLN library card number into our system, allowing you to use your WVNLN card at our Library. OCPL is an independent Library and uses a 10-digit card number. If you normally use your WVNLN card to check out materials at the Library, please contact us about getting a 10-digit library card number.

PIN Questions:

Q: What's my PIN?

A: Your PIN is the first four letters of your last name, all in lowercase letters. If your last name is shorter than four letters, your PIN will be your last name, all in lowercase letters. 

Q: I tried entering the first four letters of my last name and it is not working. Why isn't it working? 

A: The PIN is case-sensitive. If you've entered your PIN in all lowercase letters and it is still not working, your PIN may need to be reset.

Username/Password Questions: 

Q: Is a username and password the same as my library card number and PIN?

A: No, your username and password are independent from your library card number and PIN. Your username is typically the email address you provide to an online service, though some services will ask you to create a unique username along with a password. 

Q: Why do I need a username and password? How do I get a username and password?

A: Some of our online resources require you to create an account before you can access their materials. Typically there will be a "Get Started" or "Register" button you can click and then the service will allow you to register by providing your email address and creating a password for that account. After you register, you will then be able to log in with the email and password you provided. Once you log in for the first time, you may then be asked to then find our library in their system (search for "Ohio County Public Library" or by zip code - 26003) and provide your library card number and PIN. 

Q: It's been a while since I last logged into a service and I can't remember my username. What's my username? 

A: Your username is generally the email address you used to sign up for a given online service. If you can't remember which email address you signed up with, there should be an option under "Forgot your password" to retrieve your username. 

Q: I can't remember my password. What do I do? 

A: Each service should provide a "Forgot your password?" link. Generally, when you click on this link, you will be asked to provide your email address. The service will send you an email with a link to a page where you may reset your password. Once you complete the password reset, you should be able to log into the service with your email address and the new password.
